Rhonda and Mark Taylor have been the heart and soul of the Worth County 4-H food stand for the past 16 years. Mark and Rhonda have put in tireless hours, hard work, and dedication to the county fair 4-H food stand each year. They are up bright and early every morning and work into the late-night hours throughout the six-day run of the Worth County Fair. Rhonda provides outstanding organization and communication skills to all the 4-H members, parents, and club leaders as they transition their clubs into the working shifts every few hours. Rhonda provides excellent instructions and motivation to the many volunteers that rotate through the food stand while Mark manages the busy task of running the grills and overseeing food preparation and food order deliveries. The Worth County 4-H food stand has been extremely successful under their expert guidance and know how.
Rhonda and Mark’s great work has allowed the Worth County 4-H to enjoy a very profitable experience year in and year out. The additional financial resources garnered by the Worth County 4-H food stand has been a tremendous asset to Worth County 4-H members in the county to support youth activities. Due to their efforts Worth County 4-H has been able to provide a large amount of scholarships for a record number of youth to participate in the Iowa 4-H Conference at ISU, Chicago 4-H Record Book Award Trip, Worth County 4-H Washington D.C. Citizenship Focus experience, National 4-H Congress, National 4-H Conference, Junior Summer 4-H Camp and the annual Worth County 4-H Intermediate Trip to ISU.
